Dumont provides comprehensive advice regarding all matters related to copyrights and related rights. The firm’s services include the registration of all types of works provided by Mexico’s Federal Law on Copyrights, drafting of agreements, as well as advice on possible infringement cases.
Our team includes very qualified attorneys who have been dealing with the entertainment industry for years, providing invaluable advice and helping clients to find the best strategy to exploit and defend their copyrights.
Under Mexican legislation, an author is granted a moral and inheritable right to his/her work. In general terms, these rights allow the author to ensure the full disposal of his/her work and its exclusive exploitation.
Therefore, one of our goals is to help our clients understand the scope of protection granted by the law and the applicable limitations in their circumstances. We explain to clients how effective copyright protection is for them and what the available legal remedies and actions are that the author could consider in case of copyright infringement.
In litigation, we represent our clients before the Mexican Copyright Office or Civil Court (at first instance), the Federal Administrative Court or Court of Appeals (at second instance), and the Federal Circuit Court (at third instance). Our passion and enthusiasm for creating an effective strategy to defend our clients’ copyrights in court set us apart from our competitors.
